In My Mailbox (57)

IMM is hosted by one of my favorite bloggers and people, The Story Siren.

Wait, have I seriously not done an IMM since May 26? That is insane to me. Well, considering it's been three months, I really don't have as many books as I normally would. (And honestly, I'm not even sure this is all of them, so that could be part of the problem.)
Without further ado, my pretty books.

thanks to my husband for not flipping his shizz when I buy my books!

And, just because, here is a really awesome picture of a bloody Alexander Skarsgard. Because I love you all so much.


  1. Going Bovine is an AMAZING book. (I mean, it's written by Libba Bray, so what else would you expect?:) And I'm so jealous about The Diviners!

    Enjoy all of your books!

  2. I haven't done a book haul in a while and last August was insane as I was busy running a bookish event all of August but I hope I'll be able to do a post soon to show off all the book I've collected recently!

    I've read, loved and recommend A Midsummer's Nightmare, My Life Next Door and The Waiting Sky. All are amazing and I'm looking forward to seeing what you think. The Diviners looks great, a little long but intriguing. I've heard endless and amazing things about Dairy Queen and just read an amazing review over at Pure Imagination so I'm definitely looking forward to checking that out soon.

    Will stop book babbling now.Enjoy all your books, happy reading! :)

  3. SO MANY great books in that big ol' pile! I myself can't wait to read Hidden and Enshadowed, which I know you are reading right now (!!!!). My Life Next Door is SUPER, and Dairy Queen is maybe one of my fave books EVER. I can't wait to see what you think of them!
    PS. THANK YOU for the Skarsgard. He's so friggin delicious.

  4. Oh I see Rachel Gibson. I really like her! Oooh, and Hemlock - dying to read!

  5. Wow, lots of amazing books there. I really want to listen to Going Bovine via audiobook. Same goes to Dairy Queen. Right now I am listening to A Great and Terrible Beauty.

  6. Oh hayyyy I recognize some of these books.


    I just started last night and ERMAGERDDDDDDD. Is all. Just a giant ERMAGERDDDDD.

    1. SO MUCH ERMAHGERD. I'm finishing that shizz TONIGHT. It must happen.

  7. I am legit dying at April's comment. And I don't even know where to start on these books. AHMAZZZZZZINGGGG.

  8. "I don't have as many books" Oh my. My jaw dropped by the amount you got and I can't even imagine MORE books. I would be SO happy with so many books, haha. And they look awesome <3 Happy reading!

    My showcase Sunday.

  9. Wow! Great Haul! You got a lot of great books!


  10. I can barely keep track of the books I got in the three weeks that I have to for my IMM, I don't know how you did it since May! At least the Charlaine Harris books you have are from when the series was still really excellent. The series is still good, but not as great as it was back then. Enjoy your books!

  11. Wow...I can't believe you could even track down 3 months worth of books...if I don't log mine weekly, I lose track!

    Thanks for stopping by My Added to the Bookshelf Post!

  12. I really can't wait to read Skylark! It sounds like an absolutely wonderful book, as does The Waiting Sky!

    I can wholeheartedly say that My Life Next Door is AMAZING, as is A Rogue by Any Other Name.

    Happy reading!

  13. The Fever series by Karen Marie Moning is one of my absolute favorite series ever!!!

  14. Awesome books!! I can't believe you haven't done an IMM since May! At the rate I buy books, my list would be HUGE!

    The Waiting Sky is AWESOME!! And My Life Next Door is on my TBR list ... it looks amazing!

    I need to read the Sookie Stackhouse series ... I started it a LONG while back and didn't like it, but I feel like my tastes have changed since then. I have the first 7 books in the series!

    Enjoy all your reads, Jen!

  15. Nice list. My favorite is Club Dead. Ms Harris has come into her own with this, the third book in the Sookie Stackhouse series. It's got it all, humor, seduction, frightening scenes and a plot, too. Sookie's missing her boyfriend, the vampire, Bill. He's been kidnapped. And it's up to Sookie to get him back. Along the way to the rescue there are several tussles over who's actually going to be Sookie's next boyfriend, if Bill shouldn't make it. Those scenes plus the one with the werewolf in the closet are among the funniest. I don't think you have to be a vampire fan to enjoy this book.
